Facts the Wall Street Journal overlooked

Posted By: earlybird, 1/20/2020 12:15:52 PM

The Wall Street Journal ran a piece, "How Trump Has Kept Solid GOP Support Throughout Impeachment." The story made it seem like President Donald John Trump has twisted arms and bribed Republicans to get them to toe the line. His innocence -- indeed, no crime is cited in the articles of impeachment -- does not seem to come into play in the minds of the people now at the helm of what was once America's finest newspaper. But the main reason Republicans stick with The Donald is he is good president. He is fulfilling his promises, as well as the broken promises of the two Bushes. He is the Postman of Presidents

Two terms may be enough for anybody to endure! But if DJT would be willing to do a third, a law to allow that would be nice!

#2, I can see justification for a third term as compensation for what the House has done to the first. That would cover two needs, the restoration of a term squandered by the Opposition and, more importantly, attach a penalty for wasting our time. As it stands there is nothing short of impeaching the foul people pushing this fraud.

True. We want the President to obstruct Congress. Otherwise they would just impose Communism on America.

Pelosi's Watergate-era impeachment
counsel – disbarred but happy to offer

Posted by earlybird 1/21/2020 12:52:27 PM Post Reply
If you were wondering why Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment strategy feels like political malpractice, we now can understand why: she’s heeding advice from Watergate-era convicted criminal John Dean. In a fawning cover story, a Pelosi aide revealed to Time magazine that the speaker credits former the Nixon White House counsel with the idea of delaying transmission of the impeachment articles to the Senate. Typically, attorney advice is offered behind closed doors, but Pelosi jumped on this after she heard Dean discussing the idea during an appearance on CNN. Dean’s a strange choice. His life has been built on lies and misinformation, yet he’s always a welcome guest to mainstream media outlets

The media landscape in 2020 is radically different than even the vitriolic (and sometimes physically dangerous) climate that enveloped the 2016 election. Still, many newspaper editorial boards are going about business as usual by issuing formal endorsements of candidates in the Democratic primary — as The New York Times did on Sunday night with Sens. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. — before they will most likely endorse the party's nominee over Donald Trump, much as they did in 2016. But editors nationwide need to wake up to the new reality and sit out endorsing anyone in the 2020 election.

The Department of Justice has reportedly assigned an FBI special agent to work with Immigration and Customs and Enforcement and the Department of Education Inspector General Charge to investigate Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) for alleged criminal violations relating to perjury, immigration fraud, marriage fraud, state and federal tax fraud, federal student loan fraud, and bigamy. As an immigration lawyer, the very first question that came to mind when I read these reports was what immigration consequences, if any, could attach in the event that any of the above allegations are proven beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

Senator Mitch McConnell released his long-awaited rules for a Senate impeachment trial for President Trump and they stood out for their very un-Adam Schiff-like respect for both sides of the aisle.(Snip)Hear that, Dems? You all can pick whether you want witnesses to testify, any witnesses you like, but if you do, you'll have to let the Republican majority do the same. Even-steven. That's a dilemma. Cocaine Mitch has decided that the best way to stick the shiv into the Democrats is to play fair. No wonder it's got Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer bawling.

Joe Biden often brags that he was Barack Obama’s foreign affairs consigliere during their eight years together in the White House. “One of the reasons Barack Obama picked me as vice president is because he lacked the background in foreign policy,” Biden told an NPR reporter in December. “He knew what he wanted to do, he knew how to get it done. But notice every time we had a problem on Capitol Hill, who went up and got it fixed?” Biden, of course, was referring to himself. But as Obama’s legacy on international affairs implodes under the glare of Donald Trump’s brighter achievements, the role of Obama’s self-proclaimed BFF and global

Tens of thousands of people converged in the streets of Richmond, Virginia, on Monday to protest their right to bear arms in the face of swingeing state gun control laws set to be enacted later this year. They started arriving before dawn – army veterans, stay-at-home-moms, attorneys, welders, democrats, republicans – united under banners defending the second amendment and, they believe, a constitution under attack. And many of them came with their guns: AR-15s, long-guns and handguns. Governor Ralph Northam had issued a ban on a list of weapons including guns on Capitol Grounds

It's a stereotype, but it's true — Canada's winters are cold. And many of us stay toasty by burning fossil fuels such as natural gas in our furnaces or the boilers that feed our radiators. In an effort to cut down on greenhouse gas emissions and meet targets to reduce global warming, the U.K. has proposed banning fossil fuel-based heating in new homes by 2025. Cities in the states of California, Washington and Massachusetts are also trying to phase out natural gas.

An Iranian lawmaker apparently has placed a $3 million bounty on President Trump’s head. Ahmad Hamzeh made the declaration Tuesday during a speech to parliament in Tehran, although it’s unclear whether it has any backing from Iran’s top leaders, Reuters reported, citing the ISNA news agency.“On behalf of the people of Kerman province, we will pay a $3 million reward in cash to whoever kills Trump,” Hamzeh was quoted as saying. (Photo) The city of Kerman was the hometown of Gen. Qassem Soleimani, who was killed in a U.S. airstrike on Jan. 3. Fox News has reached out to the State Department for comment.
